Discussions have been taking place for the creation of a Gambling Ombudsman, to provide gamblers with legal safeguards and to deal with their financial compensation.
This could feature a dedicated new team for consumer protection, as the current Gambling Commission has been deemed to be falling short in customer protection, allowing operators to get away with unclear terms and conditions.
The aim of this proposal is to tackle issues with gambling rates and banning betting on credit cards.
The existing regulatory regime is considered to be encouraging unfair deals which take advantage of vulnerable people to avoid falling foul of the Gambling Commission.
